Went there with friends before an evening lecture. Picked our meals from the bain marie - a good choice of meat and vegetable only dishes. Generous portions on each plate but the plates were cold and the food quickly cooled losing its flavour. What we...More

Fantastic flavours and really good value. The lamb curry was complex and tender. Chicken satay and peanut sauce delicious. Well worth a visit. Hand written menu and basic but comfortable seating. Easy to miss, but a tasty reward for the keen eye. $1 per person...More

Vanny's is a great little store in Hobart that dishes out a quality feed for an excellent price. While there isn't the largest variety on offer (3 meat dishes and 2 veggo ones), what is offered is consistently great. Around 13 bucks will get you...More

Basically, the title says it all. I had a huge takeaway serve that lasted me for 2 meals. Delicious curry, with several different condiments available, and Vanny is happy to add as much or as little as you like. Friendly service and a very good...More

Been here a fair few times now. Thought I should write a review as this place deserves it. Really nice service, no wait, extras packed on, and cheap. What else is there to really say about this absolute gem of an experience in the heart...More
